Dagenham & Redbridge had a virus wipe through the camp last week, but manager Wayne Burnett was pleased to report everyone is fully fit and available for selection now.

Tranmere Rovers come to Victoria Road today for a crucial League Two clash, with the home side looking to secure a third victory in a row.

Daggers are without Luke Howell, who serves the last match of his suspension, and captain Abu Ogogo is also expect to miss out again through injury.

However, Burnett’s side have coped without the services of the two experienced midfielders recently – winning their last two matches.

He said: “Everyone is fully fit and available for selection against Tranmere.”

Zavon Hines recently returned to light training following a lengthy time on the treatment table, but isn’t ready for first team action yet.

Burnett will have left-back Joe Widdowson available to choose from for the first time since he moved on loan from Bury.

Forwards Alex Jakubiak and Patrick Agyemang, on loan from Watford and Portsmouth respectively, will both be hoping for more minutes after appearing at Gigg Lane two weeks ago.

So the Daggers boss has a number of options to choose from ahead of this afternoon’s clash with the Merseyside outfit.

A home victory would be the first time the club has won three league matches in a row since the start of the 2009/10 season.
